Velocity Valley Rotorua Vertigo Thrill Freefall Ride

Get ready to experience the longest 4 seconds of your life! Vertigo is a cutting-edge attraction exclusive to Velocity Valley. This ride sees you suspended 43 metres above the ground in a specially designed harness. Then, with no strings attached, you’ll freefall towards a giant safety net below. It’s an electrifying rush that will leave you breathless and feeling on top of the world.  

Having opened in October 2023, you’ll be among the first to conquer this vertical challenge that’s like a bungy jump, but without the cord. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t find anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere.
